From Lisa Edwards, Steve's sister:
Steve, not a day goes by that I don't think of you and where you are.
I miss you dearly and wish I could put my arms around you and give
you a big hug and tell you how much I love you. That cheeky smile of
yours, the jokes that you liked to play on Lauren and Ellen we all miss
I wish I could turn the clock back to the night you went missing, just
knowing what had happened that night would make it a little more
easier for us all. The support we have had from people has been
amazing and has helped us all through the last 7 years.
Wherever you are Steve, I love you and pray that 2013 will bring you
back to us where you belong.
From Tony Cook - Steve's brother.
Steve, there is not one day that I don't think of you and constantly try to find ways of how we might get the information that creates that spark that leads us on a trail to find you and get you home with us where you belong.
Little brother we miss you so much and I promise that we will never give up on our search to find you.
We hope for your return home to your family where you belong.
We will love you always, Tony.
From Chris Cook, Steve's eldest brother:
Stevie, never in my life did I think I'd spend a day without chatting to you, talking football on MSN, or exchanging texts about the latest footy news. You are more than a little brother. You're my best mate. Every day I think about you and pray for the day you'll come home.
People often say that they don't know how we cope, but at least we have friends and family here to pull us up whenever we feel down. Wherever you are I hope that you are not alone, not scared, and not worrying for us. Keep strong mate, all it takes is just one person to come forward, to take the opportunity of perhaps seeing someone they think might be you, and going to approach them. Wherever you are, you don't walk alone.
We were lucky to be there that night in Istanbul, the best night of our lives, to see first hand that if you believe and stay strong then you'll miracles can happen. We believe mate, we believe.
Next year I'm getting married, and want nothing more in the world than to have you there instead of an empty chair; knowing that all is missing from my life now is you being back home with us.
All my love
P.S - The Oakfield has closed down now but you have a hell of a round owing when you come home :-)
